I once saw a documentry and it had a guy in it with really bad O.C.D. Like so bad it was runing his day to day life looked like it would suck.  In his defence the table does look really nice.

... I straighten chairs like that ALL the time.  At least I don't HAVE to do it... most of the time...

Heh, OCD, like everything, has levels. I'd say I'm a "this can isn't facing the right way, i'll fix the entire shelf." which is way down from "I CAN'T STEP ON THE GRAY TILES OR IT'LL RUIN EVERYTHING!" level.

I do the gray tiles thing, but only because i'm a weirdo and make little rules for what tires i can step on; but i definately don't have OCD, or my room would be clean. XD

My work gave me OCD, I can't walk through the clothes section of a department store w/o straightening fixtures & folding tables & I yell at my mother whenever she doesn't put something back where she found it o(>3<)o

Jam,

Check out Murphy's Laws and other reasons why things go wrong- the Engineering edition. I have some of the Engineering ones in my 26th anniversary edition which i can send if you'd like. i think that many would be appropriate for the Ask an Engineer blog

I laughed at this. Exactly 12 times. And then I clicked the back button on my web browser. Exactly 3 times (because it is Monday). And then ... :)

I see what you did there, and hence I am leaving a reply with exactly seventeen words.

Yep, if someone pointed that out, I'd go back and respace the chairs....

But it's frustrating, people will come along and move the chairs! I'd have to do it again!

I think this is what cured me... well, kinda. I still alphabetize misplaced videos in the store.

Jam, I just joined your site, and I want to commend you on your watercolor work! I loved your comic already, but your coloring is rich, lush and delicious (yum, like this one, 452, is like a chocolate-cherry dessert...)

That's what my art needs, color. I do realistic graphite portraits, but at best, they're like b&w photos. Color rocks the world!

Thanks for showing us your world, in such a delightful and entertaining way. :)

That was me at the Deli I worked at. It distracted me so badly when people left their food out and didn't clean up after themselves. And when it's your job to use machines that can slice your fingers off, being distracted is a bad, bad thing.

Actually, if he had it really bad, he'd spell it CDO, in the correct alphabetical order.

I think most successful engineers have or develop some of these traits. It's part of the job to check everything twice and then check again to see if anything got missed. Then there's that whole belt and suspenders approach to designing things.
